One of my co-workers moved to Texas last fall. Not too long ago he asked me if Texas is home yet. I paused before I answered. He took my pause as a "no" because I had to think about it. That conversation and thoughts of how I define home popped into my head today. While I have made a life for myself here in Texas, it is hard to be away from a lot of my family. I am still very much defined by where I grew up, but I have not been back to the Buckeye state in over 18 months. Texas is where we purchased a house and made it our own. Texas is where my son was born, and we have no plans to move. We have lived in Texas for 6 years now, but how much of a factor does time play into this definition? Is Texas home yet?
